In The Kitchen With Kanta : Beef, Mushroom and Greens Stir-Fry

Headlines In The Kitchen With Kanta : Beef, Mushroom and Greens Stir-Fry

In-The-Kitchen-With-Kanta-Logo (1)


Today I thought I’d keep it nice and simple with this beef, mushroom and greens stir –fry.  I love this dish because it is so easy and quick to make, it can be eaten by the whole family and it is so delicious and flavoursome.

Preparation 10 mins | Cooking 10 mins

Serves: 4


  • 4 tbsp oyster sauce (optional)
  • 2 tbsp dark soy sauce
  • 1-2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 400g beef steak, thinly chopped
  • 4 spring onions, chopped
  • 300g spring greens (or green beans, peas or broccoli – any green vegetables you would like to use)
  • 150g  of mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • Salt  & pepper to taste


Marinade the meat with soy sauce (and oyster sauce if you’re using it), garlic powder, salt and pepper.  For the flavour to really soak in, marinade the beef the night before or at least 4 hours before, cover it and leave it in the fridge.

Heat a wok or a large pan until it is smoking hot; add 1 tsp oil, then stir-fry the meat until browned all over. (You may need to do this in 2 batches if your pan is not big enough, adding a little more oil).

Remove the meat, and then clean the wok.  Add some more oil. Stir-fry the greens and mushrooms. Cook for 3 minutes, stirring often; add the beef and spring onions.  Cook for a further 3-4 minutes, until the sauce has thickened and everything is cooked through.


Serve with rice or noodles. Enjoy!

  1. rubbish!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Zambians prefer “tente, kabansa, katoto…. to those manufactured tasteless mushrooms in the picture.

  2. Looks, and I am sure tastes, YUMMY!

    Kanta, I thought we agreed last time that it is MARINATE (verb) and not MARINADE (noun) when you are referring to the process (the doing). Marinade is the product from this process.
    I see you have not specified which mushroom to use, can one use any? There is a @Zambian above who has rubbished your very lovely recipe just because of the button mushrooms (manufactured?) in the picture.

    Alefwaya fye ichikolowa, busefwe na pampa stir-fry…

  3. Hi Kanta… food looks good. Can you please add cost of ma inglidients, alimwii ima otanatives in case i can’t get right bits to replicate your effort. Thanks.
